This paper explores the use of innovative and technology aided teaching methods, which utilize different modes and senses for the purpose of learning enhancement. The study was undertaken by analysing groups of students from the English and non-English speaking universities. The objective is to compare the teaching effectiveness of the same multimedia system on these two groups. The English-speaking students were chosen from two universities in Australia and the United States. A similar sample of students was also chosen from a Mexican university. The paper provides recommendations with regard to practical ways of internationalising the language of education by choosing and incorporating different media in a balanced manner so that teaching materials become less language-dependent. Hence, students from different language and cultural backgrounds in different parts of the world will be able to benefit from the same multimedia system.
